Autumn at Pilot Pond in Banff

We have enjoyed a long fall season this year.  Sometimes winter steals in before it seems like summer had closed off.  This autumn is now closing in on two months and has been quite a nice season.  I went to a small lake, Pilot Pond, which lies in the Bow Valley facing Pilot Mountain in the Banff National Park a week ago and felt the scenery around the water was a nice reflection of the fall we have had in the mountains.

I was alone except for one female Hooded Merganser (Lophodytes cucullatus) out on the water biding its time, and once flapping its wings, before continuing south.
